Clutterbrook: "I should also eat less and exercise more" Tickled me that did

jack dickson: MY SON GOT ELETRICUTED BECQUSE OF THIS crap! ^~^

Ignas Kaz: That's some really sloppy finish :)

Jim McDaniels: BUY A NEW CORD:! BOTH ENDS OF THE CORD GO BAD, FIXING ONE WILL ONLY LAST A SHORT TIME. I FIXED MY OVERHEATED BROKEN L SHAPED CONNECTOR CORD 13" MACBOOK PRO. I BOUGHT A REPLACEMENT CORD FOR $10 W/SHIPPING ON EBAY-I CHOOSE THE T SHAPED CONNECTOR INSTEAD BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT IS HEAVIER DUTY THAN THE L AND THEY ARE INTERCHANGABLE. I SAW A YOUTUBE FOR EASILY POPPPING THE BOX OPEN WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIARS AND SOLDERING THE NEW CORD. TO OPEN THE POWER BOX, SIMPLY SWING OPEN IT'S CORD STORAGE WINGS AND PLACE NEEDLE NOSE PLIARS TIPS INTO THE EDGES THE WINGS FOLD INTO. FORCEFULLY OPEN THE NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS WHICH WILL POP OPEN THE POWER BOX GLUED SPLIT CLAM SHELL SEAM. PLACE THE POWER BOX ON A TABLE WITH THE PLIARS PUSHING DOWNWARD AGAINST THE BOX-TABLE-YOU'LL HAVE TO KEEP THE POWER BOX FROM MOVING/PLIARS TIPS FROM COMING OUT BY PLACING THE POWER BOX AGAINST A STATIONARY OBJECT. THE CORD STORAGE WINGS AND THEIR DEPLOYING SPRINGS WILL NOW FALL-COME OUT. I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO REMOVE THE CLAM SHELL HALFS COMPLETELY, JUST ENOUGH TO GRAB THE WIRES. CUT THE OLD CORD LEAVING AS MUCH OF IT'S WHITE AND BLACK WIRES ON THE POWER BOX. STRIP THE OLD WIRES ENOUGH TO SOLDER TO THE NEW WIRES BLACK AND WHITE CABLES. USE NARROW STRIPS OF ELECTRIC TAPE TO HOLD THE MATCHING COLOR NEW/OLD WIRES TOGETHER FOR SOLDERING, THEN SOLDER. ELECTRICAL TAPE THE SOLDIERED BARE ENDS ADEQUATELY AND PUSH BACK INTO THE POWER BOX. CAREFULLY LINE EVERYTHING UP. PLUG IT IN TO THE WALL AND THE COMPUTER FOR A QUICK WORKING TEST BEFORE FINAL GLUING. PLACE SOME SUPER GLUE ON THE BROKEN OPEN POWER BOX SEAMS. SNAP EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER NOT FORGETTING TO REINSTALL THE WINGS AND THEIR DEPLOYING SPRING. HOLD THE POWER CLAM CASE HALFS TIGHTLY CLOSED TO ALLOW THE GLUE TO BOND. WHILE HOLDING, PLACE CLEAR STRIPS OF SCOTCH TAPE OVER THE GLUED SHELL SEAMS SO YOU CAN REMOVE YOUR HANDS AND BE DONE AND TO INSURE THE SHELL WILL NOT COME APART AS THE GLUE CURES OVERNIGHT. PLUG IT IN, YOU'RE DONE! HOPEFULLY THE NEW CORD WILL LAST A GOOD LONG TIME BUT IT'S NOT TO HARD TO REPLACE AGAIN FOR $10 AND ABOUT A 30 MINUTE JOB. This problem is caused by our current world system that does not do what is best for everyone. Check out equal money org

javier chacon: Thanks men.... very helpful. 

Tim Gummer: and music that didn't suck too - thanks!

Byron Coetsee: Dont be a dumass and unplug it first!

jepper333: haha a mac tutorial made on a windows movie maker ;)

576nathanielsj: @Iggyocracy its just cheaper to slap crap it lol

usbreaks: Great help bro ....Thanks

TheLeoGrr: A magnet LOL it's a ferrite for RF protection....

xXFIREWIREXx: I heard the house fire raged on for 2 days.

Legendary Records: Thanks for making this video Im a businessman, a student, and a graphic designer and macbook my plug came apart on me and didn't know what to do aside from buying a new one so when I seen your video lets just say "You saved my business reputation and student consistency!" Thank you!

Senzafin4: God, great job!

Frank Weijers: Great work, thanks! One question: the wire to the magnetic end that clicks on our Macbook Pro's, it has two leads actually: the inner core wire, and the outer wire. Do I understand correctly that the core - wire should be connected to the white wire inside the power brick? So white = inner black = outer I was so enthusiastic and started working right away but forgot to check how the lead is connected to the black and white wires inside :-)

Schlingsi: And it worked! ta

Stefan Paul Goetsch: Worked! Thx for the walkthrough.

JerseyKac92: Good Video! I did all of the with just a pair of scissors!

Ryan Ray: Done! Thank you!

michor10: Thanks for the great tip, man! Worked like a charm with those nose pliers.

Autofocus Creations: thanks for this vid bro. it helped me fixed charger.

OzVidGod: This guy is making it up as you go along... To get the case opened up easily, put the power supply in a vice, longways, with the apple logo facing up, and slowly squeeze the vice jaws closed on the lower half of the case. Using a bladed screwdriver and a hammer, gently tap the lower case, and the top half will come free. Lever the top off gently with the screwdriver, and after you have done the repairs properly, not like this joker, the case will click back together nicely,

enrico martiini: Thanks

pedrocaldas3: Thanks a lot!! Yesterday I have exactly problem, and with your help I resolved it with no problems. Thanks a lot bro ;)

iUseiMacs: Did that cable melt?!

Samyap9491: Thks man! It really works. Helps me save money!

Adam Hyland: worked for me too thanks man

crazydilg: Thank you so much for your frontier knowledge, which may help save us wrecking the whole things. Cheers from Darryl and Chris, Australia.

Bishop: lol don't be a dumbass

mikentosh: I found some replacement cables on eBay...Only saw MB+MBP 13" listed, but its got the same plug as my '07 Macbook Pro 17" The standard little white plug...plugs straight in. 'Buy it Now' $20 My cord is shredded just before the magnet. The repair at that end looks like a pain...Don't the 4 pins get different voltages? 20 bucks for a new cable seems like the 'path of least resistance' to me. <-- Hey, an electronics joke! Sort of... :-)

coipelD: Great vid. Sorry for others needing to cut case. Looks like they had fun though. A note on prying the case open at the ears. I had a little difficulty popping it open with the ears on. If the ears are carefully removed, the needle-nose pliers can go deeper into the brick and have more surface area to pry against. Do it on both sides. Case pops open a little easier. Thanks again mrbigbusiness1971

onlinejones: Thanks. It works. Didn't have a glue gun or a zip tie so I used gaffer tape. Also wound gaffer tape round the start of the cable to stiffen it up a bit so hopefully it won't go in the same place again.

Mike Wise: Holy damn. I just repaired mine and I strongly advise to use a screw terminal for both wires. I scraped the excessive plastic of of the terminals and they fit in perfectly in the open space (ditch the black magnet piece). No glue or soldering needed.

Tony Fitzgibbon Fiddle Player: Well put together video!

metelegalleta: Thank you very much :) i just fixed mine... it came out way better than yours... but I cheated and asked an engineer to help me ;)

Davide Candiloro: thank you 1000x! fixed GF's brick! For those trying with older/newer/different models, the inside of mine was covered by copper sheets, pasted and soldered to the circuit board... so the wires have to be intact from the interruption point to the circuit, and long enough

Nathan Lord: cheers for this, worked a treat! just repaired mine today using this tutorial. Didn't have the glue but used some electrical tape instead and now its charging perfecto.

vashunas: Thanks. Work perfect. Peace and grace !

sdbvideo: Yeah, pretty getto, could be much nicer.

suvanic: Thanks!! This really helped!!

Darren Hunter: Cool, absolutely cool! Just tried the prizing open method with pliers, worked a treat. THANKS!! Just need my replacement MagSafe connector/lead and off I go... I added your vid to iFixIt so it'll help more peeps!

Diego Freniche: Thank you very much! I've opened the case without breaking it! The other methods are just brute force. This is pure brain

Jeffrey Alden Olson: . : that's not a magnet -- it's a ferrite filter -- i just had to be the nancy-pants : P

Ricardo Parra: I concur, this video is the best around, please note that there are already cables available on ebay, complete from the magsafe connector through the soldered pins, no need to re utilize anything. I bought one and hope to install it per your tutorial.

gimmespamnow: Movie sucks. Hate the music.

Bianca Ford: The powerpoint isn't working for me....could ACTUALLY do the tutorial....like....speak through each step?

E90PAT: do the directions of the wire matter?!

AVANROTCIV: Thanks, you saved my day.

Robert Lavoie: Thanks for the great video. I can use my computer again without waiting to get another brick and saved some money too!

Rafael Fontanillas: I fix my charger!!!! Thanks
